CBN reported that Dubai Municipality has completed the second phase of the expansion of Jebel Ali Sewage Treatment Plant at a cost of AED 1.3 billion and a capacity of 375,000 cubic meters of water for this stage thus taking the combined capacity of Warsan and Jebel Ali plants to about 1 million cubic meters with the possibility of future expansion of three more stages. This expansion is characterized with a 25% reduction in energy consumption and produces about 232 billion cubic meters of irrigation water that is compliant with international standards and supports our plan to plant trees in the city in a big way as this water would be enough to irrigate 6,250 hectares of cultivated land.

Mr Dawoud Al Hajri, Director General of Dubai Municipality said that the current expansion of Jebel Ali plant is one of the important infrastructure projects for the coming years to keep pace with Dubai’s comprehensive growth in all areas to cover 100% areas of Dubai. He said that “This expansion will cover the Expo and other areas of development and can accommodate the continued and future population growth with high efficiency. It will also support the strategy of the provision and preparedness of infrastructure. The combined capacity of our plants in Warsan and Jebel Ali has reached one million cubic meters of wastewater per day. We have also reduced the cost of treating this cubic meter of wastewater to make this the world’s lowest expansion.”

Eng. Fahad Al Awadhi, Director of Drainage and Irrigation Department and Project Manager pointed out that the first part of the project deals with water treatment and the second with the treatment of solid materials. He said that “The civil works included drilling, pouring concrete and insulation, providing structural plans and delivery of materials, along with electromechanical works and installation of equipment.”
